    ABC Family Covers GLAAD's Gay Programming Checklist

    GLAAD has launched its fifth annual Network Responsibility Index and also very little has actually changed from years past; with one noteworthy exception. ABC Family members signs up with MTV as the only various other network to make an Excellent rating for its programs. It just goes to show that any kind of network can evolve.

    ABC Family members has its origins as a component of the Pat Robertson Christian Broadcasting Network; I don't have to inform you that Rub Robertson is not specifically a gay-friendly sort of guy. Disney got the network in 2001, yet as part of the contract the network continues to be obligated to air Robertson's The 700 Club That does not appear to have actually quit ABC Household from creating programs that include gay and lesbian characters as well as portraying them rather and as multi-dimensional characters. According to GLAAD, ABC Family members includes pictures as well as representations of gay as well as lesbian characters in 55 percent of its 103 hours of programs. Shows like Pretty Little Liars, Greek, The Secret Life of the American Teen and also Make it or Break It are all amongst the series' lauded for their addition and also representation of gay and lesbian characters on ABC Household.

    According to GLAAD, television still needs to enhance its portrayal of transgendered individuals, and really needs to give up the gay males; 73 percent of representations include gay males. I'm amazed Showtime really did not tip the balance with The Genuine L Word alone.

    Among broadcast networks, the CW earned the top spot, with 33 percent of its shows hours representing gay and lesbian personalities. CBS continues to be in the bottom spot with 10 percent. You can look into the complete report from GLAAD here.
